The City of Sacramento Tenant Protection Program assists residential tenants and landlords in understanding the limits on annual rent increases and protections for unjustified evictions. With the state’s current eviction moratorium set to expire June 30, it’s important tenants and landlords know their rights and responsibilities under the TPP.
Program staff have and will continue to conduct outreach to Sacramento residents including hosting informational webinars to provide more information and answer questions. The next webinar is April 22 at 5:30 p.m. Please register here if you would like to attend. Recordings of all previous webinars are also available online.

California COVID-19 Rent Relief
Whether it’s a health-related event or a significant financial hardship, COVID-19 has affected us all. As our state continues to recover, we are committed to keeping families housed and recognize that California renters and landlords have enough to worry about. We want to make sure that past due rent isn’t one of them.
CA COVID-19 Rent Relief will help income-eligible households pay rent and utilities, both for past due and future payments. The federal Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 provides funding to support the program and tenant (renter) protection laws signed by Governor Newsom.
